Tap. Just hazy yellow. Aroma of raw and some cooked apples, dry ginger ale. Tastes of sweet apples, some acidity at the end. Rather dull and oversweet.

Straw yellow with minute, intermittent carbonation. Very clean and straight-forward, whole apple pulp nose audibly bursting with CO2 gas. Medium sweet apple juice front, supple fruit finish with light acid. Well carbonated, crisp and clean. Featherweight in body. Not much here. Dangerously drinkable but one dimensional. A crowd pleaser for those who like a simple cider. (33cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
